I have an in-law about whom I often use that expression.
Don't know about geese, but have heard anecdotally that turkeys may do that. Having been around a few turkeys, I'd say they're certainly brainless enough to do it....and if they don't it's probably just because it hasn't occurred to them yet. Dumbest fowl in the universe, but they are good eating.
